In the coming days you will see promotional posts and Dynamic Communities announcements for a new User-Focused event coming up on April 16 & 17 called Level Up MidWest (still not absolutely sure about the name).

Level Up Midwest is a combined Dynamics GP and Power BI/Power Platform gathering for users at the Ho Chunk Gaming complex in Wisconsin Dells, WI. It's a day-and-a-half Local User Group meeting in one of the most family-friendly locations in the Midwest, Wisconsin Dells.

The leaders of four GPUG Chapters of the Year -- Milwaukee (2014), Minneapolis (2016), Green Bay (2017), and Chicago (2019) -- got together with the good people at Dynamic Communities to create the Local User Group meeting to end all Local User Group meetings!

At the Ho Chunk Gaming Resort, we'll have a main meeting room and three breakout rooms for three tracks of sessions over the day-and-a-half, totaling 18 presentations between Dynamics GP and Power BI/Power Platform.

We are calling out for presenters! If you've got something significant to show in either the Dynamics GP or Power BI/Power Platform space, then you're very possibly the perfect person to present! Please contact either:

@Leah Thvedt -- GPUG Chapter Manager, Dynamic Communities
@Brian Lambertz -- GPUG Minneapolis
@Katie Graves -- GPUG Chicago
@Aleiha Hanson -- GPUG Milwaukee
@Steve Erbach -- GPUG and Power BI Green Bay

While this may seem GP-heavy, believe me, we want Power BI users to look on this meeting as a concentrated dose of Power BI best-practices goodness, too!

This is a combined GP and Power BI/Power Platform event put together by users for users.
50-to-60 minute sessions
Plus a whole lot of networking!​​​​​

Registration will be handled a little differently than the garden-variety Local User Group meetings you're used to. We have an event link on our GPUG Milwaukee home page; but that's simply a placeholder... you won't register for the meeting there.

Where will you register? Dynamic Communities is putting together a Level Up! home page specifically for this event. There you will find all the details about the itinerary as well as a registration link. That Level Up! page isn't quite ready yet... but we'll let you know as soon as it is!

For now, please put April 16 & 17 on your calendar for this brand new Midwest event in Wisconsin Dells. And please tell your co-workers and anyone that uses GP or Power BI!
